My college offered Dance as an elective under the Physical Education requirement. It’s easy to scoff at that, but anyone who has participated in an energetic dance will tell you how it’s a real workout. And especially if you have a partner you’re swinging and lifting. I saw some of their performances and it made me tired just watching. I was glad I took fencing as my elective.
Because I’m a geek, that’s why.
A popular video format is to compile dance scenes from movies and cue them to some popular song. I hadn’t realized just how many there were, even outside of musicals. It’s obvious that people love to dance.
April 29 is International Dance Day, so before you put on your boogie shoes, check out these fun dance mugs!
